Happy New Year everyone! I can’t believe that tomorrow I have to go back to school, Christmas vacation went by way too fast. Did you have any kind of a celebration for New Years Eve? We went out to eat and to a movie, then came home and watched TV. None of us made it to see the ball drop, we all fell asleep!
Did you get anything nice for Christmas? I had a VERY nice Christmas. Between my parents, aunts and uncles, friends and Santa, I got quite a few things I’d been wanting and a few I wasn’t expecting!
First off, thank you so much to Xyra and the gang at Tea Time For Melody Q for this adorable holiday shirt!
And these awesome mittens too!
My parents go by the “4 Things” rules for Christmas. Something to read, something to wear, something you need and something you want. First, my something to read:
Yeah, I know it’s kind of the wrong season for it, but I really wanted it. I’ll be ready for next Halloween!
Now for my something to wear:
I saw this dress in the catalog and had mentioned it to my mom, so I was really excited to get it. And to go with it was my something I wanted:
Cowboy boots! I think they will look great with the dress.
My something I need was a very cool gift. I’d mentioned this a while ago, and I was really surprised to get it!
An amp for my guitar!!! I was so excited, I’ve been using the one that belongs to mom, but it’s too big for me to bring to my room. This is the perfect size!
My aunts and uncles decided to get me what they called “retro” gifts. They got me things that reminded them of their own childhoods.
First a set of Lincoln Logs! You can build cool stuff out of these.
A Lite Brite! A friend of mine has one of these and I was so excited to get one of my own!
And this cool, old timey-wimey radio!
Did you notice my Dr. Who sounding comment on the radio? Well, there’s a reason for that. I exchanged gifts with my friend Louisa–and she got me a cool Dr. Who book–and a sonic screwdriver!!!
Santa brought me a couple of things too. Some jewelry in my stocking:
These cool chocolates: (Mom told me I had to eat them a little at a time, not all at once. Darn!)
And my big present from Santa was super exciting:
I got Luciana!!!! I was so happy! Now I can join the doll club too with the other girls. Here are some pictures of her out of the box, I think she is so pretty!
Oh, that cool fluffy white pillow on my bed, was also a present from Santa. It will come in very handy for when I want to watch TV or play video games.
Hope you enjoyed seeing my presents. Did you get anything really special for Christmas? I loved everything I got this year, but I’m most excited about Luciana and my amplifier for my guitar.
Thanks for stopping by! Now I have to clean this mess up before Louisa gets here, she’s coming over to play later on! Bye! And Happy New Year!
